Default The New Audi A5 leaked.















Looks nice from the front but the rear is poorly executed.Interior is traditional audi,understated and well built.

Wow! Nice looking GT! Any pictures of the rear seats? Pics look like official releases from Audi.

4.2 litre, 350 bhp V8 in this shape...sounds YUM! I've had a soft corner for the new Audis - I guess I'd like to own one of these.

I dont think there's an S5 planned yet. The A5 will allegedly debut with the 4.2 litre 350 bhp V8 and subsequently (maybe S5) will also feature a 5.something litre V10 churning out > 500 bhp. A always comes before S for Audi.

there is and its rumored to produce 344hp from a detuned 4.2L V8 from the RS4.the normal A5 competes with the 3-series coupe and it can never have the 4.2L as the debut engine,the one in the pics above is the 3.0L diesel,below is the s5 pics.

I dont have any source other than the local audi dealer and Google, but they all seem to be saying the same thing - 4.2 l V8 for the A5.

New details on the Audi A5 - Autoblog

Inside Line: 2008 Audi A5 - 2008 Audi A5 gets its first taste of the Nürburgring

Plus you can find many more links on Google. I'm hoping the news is right because I want one.

Nice looker, altho couldnt help but notice these days models from a company resemble each other to the extent they look like different sized variants of the same model.

It looks like the sides/fenders really resemble the Z4/New 3-series/X-concept of BMW with all the flame-surfacing. Or maybe it's just me!

Looks like a BMW 3 series a little bit.good looking , the rear should have been more special I think more inspiration would have been better.Front is very similar to the A6, side is good too.Interior is in the Audi DNA for sure , we can see that the MMI big button is moving from the up of the central dashboard to down on basic model.Should be a FWD and as well a Quattro.Size of the screen in the cockpit will varry from one version to another one.

Lovely. I liked it. Like the others said though, the back could use some more character.

The front's quite agressive. The rest of the car resembles many other coupes. Still, it's a very good looking car. Nice wheels too. The interiors are lovely, but, the black colour might bore me after a while. Like most new Audis, I'm sure this car will be a quality product.
